Looking through the footage last night I think I have got pretty much everything I need so far. I’m collecting my own images of Schwitters related locations and land around the Merzbarn. What I don’t have is any signposts of where I am. Both literally and symbolically I need a few signs and signifiers that say Schwitters, Merzbarn, Ambleside and Cumbria. I may not use them but its best to do it now while I am actually here.
Its my last day at the Merzbarn today. So that’s what I will do.
Spent the morning skiving at the Langdale Country Club Spa (sauna, swimming pool, Jacuzzi). So much for saving money. But there is a limit to how much a girl can rough it.
Anyone who wants to find the Merzbarn – follow the signs from Ambleside to Langdale, then Chapel Stile. It’s a double green gate opposite the Langdale Country Club. Marked Hotel on this map - bottom left. There is no sign and the gate is locked. You have to make an appointment to see it or come on open days. www.merzbarn.net
